Un temporel monastique dans l'espace médiéval gascon : l'abbaye prémontrée de la Casedieu (Gers), XIIe-XVIe s

Abstract : The abbey of la Casedieu (ca 1135-1790) was the first monastery of the premonstratensian order in Gascony and the head of a circarie in the south of France and the north of Spain. Archeological artefacts and original documents help to partly recreate the rich and complex history of a disappeared abbey which that has founded over thirty abbeys and prioriesThe written documentation also helps to reveal an extensive network of barns called granges, founded during the 12th and 13th century, thereafter converted into settlements called bastides or converted into rented lands (from 14th century). Premonstratensian also had two priories and an intricate network of churches and mills, which continued working up until the 18th century.Study of the bastides founded by the canons also shows their capacity for economic growth : they built « abbey houses » for commercial and residential use ; they tried to stop the settlement of mendicant orders.Likewise, the adaptation of the premonstratensian to the crises at the end of the Middle Ages help to understand the role of commendatory abbots, the setting up of the military defence of the abbey or the involvement in collegiale churches, before the destructions during the Religious wars.
